What others are saying: "Capt. Stanhouse has hit the ground running at the United Launch Alliance (ULA) rocket factory. While coming up to speed learning all the production aspects of two unique launch systems, Emily was challenged with the largest production rate since the EELV program began. The higher production rates have come as a challenge and have led to many issues Capt. Stanhouse has had to work with ULA to resolve. Finally, in her new position, Emily will be at the fore-front of the Next Generation Launch System (NGLS) development and will be the eyes and ears for the SPO located at Los Angeles AFB. She will be instrumental as ULA works through the initial production of the new Vulcan NGLS and the retirement of the Atlas V, Delta IV and Delta II," said Scott Frerking, branch chief, Operating Locations Denver/Decatur.
